Look and feel like a million bucks without breaking the bank with soothing face and body treatments
Despite having a regular yoga routine, I just can’t seem to get the zen part down. Sun salutations? Throw ‘em at me. Savasana? Now, that’s a problem. Hunching over my laptop has caused some serious tension in my back and shoulders that required a good rub down. While I was having these issues, my partner too had woes of his own: his sensitive skin is usually irritated, no thanks to the hot and humid Singapore weather.
Frustrated, we set out to conquer this double whammy and jumped on the opportunity to check out the award-winning St. Gregory Spa at Pan Pacific Orchard, Singapore. Located just off the buzzy shopping street of Orchard Road, this luxe spa is decked out in calming ocean-themed interiors, and boasts four spacious treatment rooms. We were impressed by the facilities in the couples’ room, which included two spa beds, a shower and even a bathtub.
We were spoiled for choice at the options available –from Balinese massages and mud wraps to detoxing facials and even traditional Chinese foot reflexology. In a bid to de-stress, I went for the most relaxing option: the Aromatic Body Bliss Massage, which also happens to be the spa’s signature treatment. Therapists at St. Gregory Spa are carefully handpicked and trained, so you can be sure you’re in good hands. The massage uses a combo of essential oils and gentle Swedish massage strokes, and I felt the ache in my shoulders disappear over the next 90 minutes. Soon enough, I was snoozing away – the true mark of an amazing massage in my books! A luxurious milk bath is also included in this package, which had me channeling my inner Cleopatra -complete with soft and supple skin!
While I was catching forty winks in pure bliss, my partner was being treated to a 60-minute Thali White Facial to revive his dull and uneven skin tone caused by years of acne. As a first-timer, he was worried about the treatment aggravating his sensitive complexion. But his fears were dispelled: Using premium products from French beauty brand Thalion and a complimentary 15-minute Oxygen Infusion blast, the treatment was gentle on his skin. The result was a visible glow and a fully hydrated complexion.
With such plush facilities and top-notch service, you’d think a massage or facial at St. Gregory would cost a bomb. But get a load of this: you can score the St. Gregory Luxe Experience package, which includes five sessions of 90-minute Aromatic Body Bliss Massages and a complimentary 30-minute milk bath (worth $100), at $840.
Prefer a little pampering for your face instead? The Glow Facial Experience package ($700) comprises four 60-minute sessions of the Thali White Facial, plus four 15-minute Oxygen Infusion treatments (worth $100).
If you’re not quite ready to leave yet, we feel ya. Both packages also include a complimentary Lifestyle Pass (worth $240), which means you can get full access to the sauna, jacuzzi, fitness centre, mineral water swimming pool at the Wellness Centre before and after treatments. And as if the spa packages weren’t tempting enough, package holders also get to enjoy 30% off all a la carte treatments – sweet!
